of a larger cell, i'm wondering whether the obama administration of it drone- killing the leadership of these various organizations has brought us down the path to this. whether or not capturing these leaders of al qaeda and interrogating them like in the previous administration might have led to intelligence, it might have blown this open before the tragedy. host: clips from new york. he brought up the gun control issue. here's an article from the washington times this morning -- one other story today, this from the baltimore sun. i have a few minutes left to talk about the ballston bomber, the one that's in custody, should be designated as an enemy combatant? michael from arizona on our independent line. good morning. caller: it's actually arkansas. hi. i do believe there is a word for someone who is a u.s. citizen who commits an act of war isinst the u.s. -- it treason, punishable by death. notur u.s. government was being run by a bch o intellectualorons, but i would have already been convicted and put in front of a firing squad and shot. host: you are talking about the one that i
disagree with the obama's administration decision to rule out enemy combatant suspect. >> reporter: labeling him as an enemy combatant would allow the government to question him without an attorney president and maybe get some of those answers. barbara starr, cnn, the pentagon. >> thanks, barbara. most of us can't even begin to imagine the incredibly tense moments that led up to the arrest of dzhokhar cztsarnaev. but that's what they are trained to do. the s.w.a.t team that took tsarnaev into custody describes the final moments to anderson cooper. let's listen. >> let's do it. let's do what we're trained to do. this is the suspect. we're trained to go in and apprehend him. you can see one hand is clear of any weapons each time he went the other way, his hand went down inside the boat out of our view. i know everybody here we've spoken about it. each time he did that, we had to assume he was reaching for either a weapon, a firearm or some explosive ignition device to kind of draw us in and take us out in a suicide type manner. he did that a couple of times as we're still approaching
americans, more foreign nationals on the payroll. the politically correct obama administration people don't want to do but you will not get information from citizens. it means getting in the face of terrorist overseas rather than trying to defend against every knapsack in the united states. stuart: we will not get any more information from this suspect. >> because of the decision to insert him into the political justice system. the lawyers telling him not to say anything more. what we should have done with this fellow is declare him an enemy combatant, send him to court, but guantanamo bay. stuart: investor john bolton. thank you very much. next, my take on president obama's decision to inflict maximum pain on a sequester cuts through airport delays. where the faa could have cut the that the president had let him. outrage tuesday rolls on after this. stuart: this is an understatement, netflix shares are up this morning. way up. more people signed up to pay for netflix after three months of "house of cards." people loved it. many people subscribe to netflix now, almost as much as hulu, hbo
of national drug control policy spoke last week about the obama administration's response to substance abuse. gil kerlikowske also announced a $1.4 million grant to the national association of drug court professionals for their work in helping nonviolent offenders with substance abuse. hosted by the national press club in washington, d.c., this is just over 50 minutes. >> well, good afternoon, everybody. it's a great pleasure, and it's a great honor to be with all of you. first, let me thank so many people for being here today. and thank you for that wonderful introduction and the information, and i'm so glad you had a chance to spend some time with general dean who's somebody i'm going to talk about a lot in a few minutes along with a couple other people up here, also, that i've been so impressed with. the drug policy issue, the drug policy problems are really complex, and they're really difficult, and that's why i'm so appreciative of this forum to be able to talk a little bit more at length about it. and then, certainly, to answer the questions. let me also mention the fact that donna lin
discussion that the blind sheik, whose picture is up on the screen now, might be freed by the obama administration, that president morsi in egypt that seemed to infuriate you some what and you wrote an article, "will obama free the blind sheik?" now if you think about this, in this case, if the death penalty is not sought, are you concerned that some president down the road could ignore the issue of a life sentence imposed by a federal judge and just send the terrorist off somewhere? >> on this guy, tsarnaev? >> right. >> no, i'm not concerned about that. he's very different from the sheik. concerned about that. a sheikh is a highly symbolic figure among muslims. he was and still is widely respected as a muslim scholar, and regarded as an authority. he's a big deal. this guy is a mutt. >> so you're not worried about that? >> no. >> finally the death penalty, if he is charged with those crimes that he clearly can be, he's eligible for the death penalty? >> absolutely. >> do you think that this >> do you think this just disat the present time -- justice department will seek it? >> i h
the obama administration will allow us that and they have a bad track record. >> and this is not the course the administration will take. they will take reading him his rights after national security exception has run out and prosecuting him in a federal court as well. >> molly: thank you. >> megyn: more breaking news. news reporting that federal charges have now been filed against the surviving suspect. though they are reportedly being filed under seal. that means we don't get to see them. they will have to let it's know what the charges are but perhaps not all the supporting information. in a case of this magnitude there is no way they are going to keep the charges private and not public. in other words, what exactly has he been charged with? a terrorist act, using weapons of mass destruction? these were all on the potential list of charges. so we'll try to get more on what they plan to release to the general public in terms of what they say this man on your screen is actually guilty of according to our federal prosecutors. also, new reaction from the white house about the bombing investi
is available to answer those questions. on the issue of the obama administration, during the 2008 campaign, president obama criticized the bush administration's treatment of detainees. candidate obama promised to close guantÁnamo and to reject torture without exception or equivocation to the also criticized previous administration for executive secrecy, including repeated invocation of the state secret privilege to get civil lawsuits thrown out of course, and he promised to lead a new era of openness. the administration has fulfilled some of those promises, and inconspicuously failed to fulfill others. in some cases because congress has lost them but in other places -- block them. as mentioned earlier, i level of secrecy surrounding the rendition and torture of detainees cannot continue to be justified on the basis of national security. the authorized enhanced techniques have been publicly disclosed, and the cia has approved its former employees publication of detailed accounts of individuals and interrogation. ongoing classification of gerald document these practices serves only to conce
and members of the obama administration. this is the first time a british monarch has been present at the funeral of a british prime minister since the death in 1965 of sir winston church hill. extra security was in place after the boston marathon bombings. >>> new gun control legislation is in doubt after votes are scheduled in just hours now. kyla campbell has more. >> reporter: senators are scheduled to vote on nine different pieces of legislation starting at 1:00 pacific. we're 25eubging a live look -- taking a live look at the floor right now where dianne feinstein has been speaking. she thanked those who have been supporting her legislation. >> i'm grateful for the willingness to step up, show courage and do what's right for america. >> feinstein sponsors an amendment that would ban assault weapons and limit the size of magazines. that's not expected to get enough votes to pass. there are other amendments including some dealing with mental health. the main bill in the spotlight is the bipartisan plan to expand background checks to include seales online and at fun shows. some
've shied away from gun control. this is the first time the obama administration got into this legislative fight and maybe underestimated how difficult it would be to get congress to change. even in a body that is controlled by the democrats. there is a working majority in favor of gun control. >> do you think -- i heard the president specifically call for a more organized efrl on the other side of the issue. do you think that might be happening as well a little bit more? >> sure. you might see ofa, the group that wants to support the president. they might get more involved and democratic law makers want to do more. gun right supporters have a pretty big foothold inside the democratic party especially in the senate. senators in california, senators are a little different than have much more rural areas and push on the gun control issue. you look at the senators from alaska and montana and arkansas, north dakota yesterday that deserted the president on the gun control votes. those are not easy areas to sell as i was talking with somebody the other day. the idea of them coming out one week v
? >> fundamental question, is this an international terrorism investigation, and did the obama administration know something about these two men back as far back as 2011. what we now know is that the fbi at the request of another country, no one is saying it's russia, at the request of another country looked into the activities of the older brother. there was concern that another country expressed about him. the fbi issuing a statement last night about all of that, and saying in part, and let me read it, "the request stated it was based on information that he, the older brother, was a follower of radical islam and a strong believer, and that he had changed drastically since 2010, as he prepared to leave the united states for travel to the country's region to join unspecified underground groups." we don't know that this request to look into him came from russia, but now russian president vladimir putin today saying he wants some cooperation obviously with u.s. investigators. the u.s. intelligence community, the fbi, the cia now going back through everything they have, trying to see if there were, i
that time against him in a federal courtroom. >> put yourself in the shoes of the obama administration. they want to know as much as they can about how this happened so as to not make -- make sure it doesn't happen again. if he lawyers up, if he is read his miranda rights, he probably will be advised not to cooperate and not to say anything. isn't it just to play devil's advocate in the best interests of the nation to withhold on doing that for a second and gets a much information as they can? >> well, it's a very tough decision, but really the exception they're using is the public safety exception and that's to protect the rest of us, to make sure there aren't any accomplices, any other direct and immediate threats. but after that, it is in the interests of the country to be able to ross cuku prosecute him public courtroom and have people understand what happened. so it is important for the administration and justice department and fbi to give him hir miranda right so is they can use all the evidence against him. there will be many victims and survivors who feel it is important to hav
. the legalization if you're an american and overseas and participating -- >> the obama administration has used this legal argument to justify their drone attacks. it's not unfamiliar to them. >> about a year ago or so, the nypd came under fire for some listening in this -- using surveillance techniques on certain groups. >> in new jersey. >> in new jersey. >> right. >> there was a thing going back and forth between new york, new jersey, whether they were allowed to do this or not. with all this going on, aren't we making the case for more of that rather than less of that? >> yeah, we have to do more of it. it's very uncomfortable. it's very -- none of us want to give up any of our privacy, understandable. the reality is this is how you stop them. this is the only way you have to stop them. that is getting the information in advance. they're doing everything they can to hide what they're doing. law enforcement, intelligence agencies, they have to be able to do everything they can to intrude into them to find out what they're doing. >> mayor, as far as i can tell, we knew about nidal malik hasan
forces? we are giving them, most recently, the obama' administration they would give them 120 $3 million. the opposition clearly that they wanted far more than that. yet we are giving them armor and stuff like that. how can we defeat them when we are supplying them? at the same time, we have some issues like benghazi and the helicopter that had the hard crash landing in south korea this week and nobody has covered that at all. west, texas connected to the bombing in boston? and how much fertilizer was taken away before the explosion occurred? is anybody have any control over that? you may come i just don't see how we can defeat al qaeda and terrorism, homegrown or foreign- born, if we continue to put with free welfare without giving them any drug test or saying you have 30 days to 90 days to get off of welfare and get a job. we just need to bring back our moral values and ethics and start holding our politicians to to make them stand up there and do what they said they do, and not get away with fast and furious. host of issues,, some directly related and some not. yes: it is not uncommon
the thistle and the drone and to lay out the use of loans by the obama administration. it is recorded at american university in washington, d.c. is part of book tv college series. it's about half an hour to the >> booktv is on location at american university in washington, d.c.. we are pleased to be joined here by professor akbar ahmed at american university to give his most recent book is the vessel and the drone how america's war on taricani global terror on islam. dr. ahmed come visit a clash of civilizations or class of religion? >> i would say it is more complex. i find these concepts rather simplistic and by now more than ten years after 9/11, we should be aware of the complexity of what is happening on the ground a lot where america is involved in the various wars to it i find in this particular study that many of these conflicts are rooted in the clash already taking place before 9/11 between central governments and the tribes and communities on the periphery between states so therefore without an understanding of the culture and the history it is impossible to impose the simp
agreement. >> reporter: gonzalez suspects what may be happening now is in the obama administration is a quote, interagency scrum where some are pushing for a quick mirandizing. others may be advocating a delay so as much information as possible can be garnered, martha. martha: no doubt there is big discussion going on either way. the older brothers trip to chechnya in 2011 is getting a lot of attention. what can we learn about that, doug? >> reporter: we learned a bait of new information about that when the fbi tried to trace the elder tsnaraev's trip to russia and chechnya, the trail went cold for the most mundane much reasons. listen up. >> he went over to russia butp a parently when he got on the aeroflot plane, they misspelled his name so it never went into the system that he actually went to russia. >> reporter: others suggested they got all the radical indock operation -- indoctrination around the block from their boston home. >> you can point to radical imams here and there they put on their facebook pages. you about the fact they lived a few blocks away from a very controve
rights. >> first of all, i to give kudos for calling it an act of terrorism to the obama administration like they called hassan workplace violence. bottom line, if they don't want to use the statements a this guy makes in a criminal prosecution, they can ask him questions all day long without murnd. they can do it after he gets a lawyer as long as a clean team, a team that is is not involved in the criminal prosecution goes in and asks intelligence related questions that is separated by an ethical wall that is pretty from the criminal prosecution, it's all good. >> megyn: miranda protects you from the prosecutor but it didn't protect you some intel person, we want more answers. >> that is exactly right. somebody may think, if he has lawyer how can some task force ask him questions. the bottom line is they are not prevented from asking him questions that is usinged in capacities other than criminal prosecution. he. >> megyn: he is not required to answer. he has lawyered up. he is represented by the public defenders office out of boston. i think the guy's name is william thicke and they s
rejected an extension, president obama is taking executive action for guns to be sold. the obama administration wants to remove barriers and help privacy laws that stop some states from sharing mental health data with the fbi's current background situation. twelve people are confirmed dead and west, texas. 200 people are injured. those are your headlines. cheryl: we have had a newsweek would have not seen in years. we are waiting for a news conference from the massachusetts state police. we are going to bring in harry now. when you are here just a few moments ago, you said the media can actually hinder an investigation like this. it can hinder a manhunt of this type. >> exactly. you could be giving away some information. if there are cameras out there and he is near a television set, he can actually see it. he can plan his escape that way. trying not to give too much information away about what the police are doing right now to apprehend him. dennis: when the fbi posted those two photos yesterday at 5:00 o'clock, i did not know if it was an american caught if it was optimistic or
senators are urging the obama administration to delay for at least 30 days the f.a.a. furloughs of air traffic controllers. one from connecticut and the other from kansas say they're causing turmoil for thousands of travellers as well as security concerns. t.s.a. is delaying plans to let airline passengers carry pocket knives, and some sporting equipment on airlines. the policy change was to begin on thursday but it was opposed by flight attendants, air marshals and some 9/11 family members. t.s.a. said the delay will allow it to review the issue. max boccus will not seek re-election in 2014. he served six terms in the u.s. senate. that's 36 years. democrats will now be defending open senate seats in six states next year. imagine that. he's served longer than you've been alive. those are the headlines. cheryl: it's cheryl. it's been -- hello, lady. it's been an entertaining 36 years. >> you're a lot younger than 36. that's for sure. cheryl: yeah. love a. thank you. het you are -- heather from the news room, thank you. 19-year-old boston suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev facing charges that cou
thoughts on that. >> it doesn't matter what i think should happen because the obama administration is determined to do these cases in the justice system. >> megyn: do you believe, when they find this person they'll give him a lawyer, lawyer up, get miranda. >> oh, yeah. now, a couple of things about that. they have suggested that there's an exception to miranda for public safety which we all know there is. i think they've been very extravagant in assuming they'll get the largest possible exception under the law and the reality is in different circuits that exception is interpreted differently. >> if they think they don't have to give the guy the miranda rights, you have the right to remain silent and right to an attorney, they think we have a big exemption, before they wofer that and try to get all of the information from the person and it may come back to bite them because some jurisdictions don't see it that way. >> absolutely right. in some places if you're a dangerous offender you get a long exception. in others, it doesn't matter how dangerous you are, if police basically rend
they want to. >> this is a matter of policy under the bush and especially the obama administration, connecting jihad holy war and islamists who embrace it and believe it is their god-directed obligation to engage in it with the attacks or terrorism we are supposed to be defending ourselves against has been impermissible. this is crazy and it has created, i think, vulnerabilities as has frankly the lessening of the engagement of the public in this war. you have been talking about it all morning the public helped enormously once those pictures wept up. it's very much the case that we need to have the public on the case all the time. it's kind of a question of are we on a war footing in the face of this jihadist threat. this global jihadist threat or aren't we? unless and until we are, i think we will wind up having a lot moornd worse of these kind of attacks. >> brian: do you believe there are other people involved with these two? >> there were other people involved certainly in providing, i suspect, freezing rain structure, training and support. we need to find them, too. >> brian:

as secretary of state. i applaud the obama administration for ambitious negotiations on the important trade agreements you talked about -- the transatlantic trade and investment partnership, and the agreement with trading partners in asia. these negotiations hold a promise of boosting the u.s. economy with increased access to our largest markets, and stronger investments that would lead to more jobs. the economic potential is critical at a time when one in five jobs in our country are trade dependent. that trade is about more than tariffs. toope, we know, is critical help the united states with issues that cut across the foreign-policy perspective. asia is also key to several of our economic security interests, as you highlighted in your recent trip. it is critical we deepen economic ties to the ee you and but cannot lose sight of other critical missions, like turkey and russia. tackling some of our toughest geopolitical challenges will require a closer connection, i believe, to these nations. i praise you on your recent trip to turkey, where you have gotten turkey closer to resolving issue

to determine the exact cause of the fire. the obama administration is trying to figure out what if anything it can now do about gun control. the senate gutted legislation that would have approved background checks. four democrats joined republicans in blocking the bill, afterwards an infuriated president obama spoke and described it as a shameful day in washington. in boston today the fbi is considering a possible photo and video release of a person they believe is connected to the marathon bombings on monday. the video was taken by surveillance camera near a lord & taylor store. investigators are debating the benefits and drawbacks of releasing materials to the public. the death toll stands at three dead more than 150 injured. ten remain in critical condition, and media critics are hammering several news organization who wrongly reported that a suspect had been arrested. cnn in addition to the erroneous report that somebody had been arrested also got the man's skin color wrong. no explanation from cnn. stephanie? >> stephanie: david -- >> actually am i supposed to pit
confirmation, so i would think that the obama administration would be thanking the senate for its work to make it easier for any president to get confirmations, and in any event when we're talking about cabinet members, president obama is being better treated than the last three presidents. we are talking about circuit judges. he is better treated than george w. bush. when we're talking about district judges, he is treated a little worse in his first term than george w. bush, but we changed the rules to speed up district judges and the score in the second term, as i have said twice now, obama 13, bush 1, obama way ahead. i like to see confirmations move ahead. i hope i don't hear this much more when the record shows that in fact it's a manufactured crisis. i thank the president and i yield the the presiding officer: without objection. the question is on the torres nomination. all in favor say aye. those opposed, no. the ayes appear to have it. the ayes do have it. the nomination is confirmed. the question is on the watson nomination. is there a sufficient second? there is. the clerk will call
of the first things that the obama administration could, should, and won't do is have a treasury department, an executive agency designate china currency manipulator so the cues can start taking countermeasures against it. there was a bill to crack down on bill manipulation passed in the house and senate in separate sessions so was it was not law. that was one of the immediate things people ask, what could one do, but the larger issue is the u.s. similarly has to get wise to the fact that free trade is a theoretical construct built on sand, and it's consequences, which are observable, are bad and they are inexitble. if anyone has questions, i'll take them now. >> i got a question. >> one moment, please. we'll bring the. i should say, author and senior economist, [inaudible] >> sorry, i think now -- yes, sorry, and we'd like to remind our viewing audience this is a program at the commonwealth club of california, why free trade doesn't work. so your questions are recorded anded in the telecast, use the microphone that i'll now -- >> thank you, a spirited talk. i have a question from a nonecon

serves in his second term now in the obama administration, and this is a military procedure in terms of the trial of this gentleman. and i just want to make sure the record is clear, even though the gentleman who was a great member and has every right to question the attorney general, but it's not something the department of justice handles. >> and i appreciate that. the only reason i bring it up is because mr. mchugh himself said in this interview, that i'm not an attorney and i don't run the justice department, but we are told that the purple heart award would have a profound affect on the ability to conduct a fair trial. so the answer by the secretary of the army and implies that the justice department has some in albany. and that's what i'm asking. so if your answer to that is no, then we certainly can move on. >> as far as i know, the decision to award purple hearts does not influence in the bud with the justice department said that i will look at that, and to the extent we've had some interaction with the defense department, relay that to you. but i think what the congressman h
theory that the obama administration is deporting a saudi national who is behind the bombings. it is the wild wild west. we were saying -- somebody made a good point in the paper yesterday, that it makes you almost wish for the days of the 6:00 pm news where you had to wait, but at least it was reasonably accurate and responsible. >> yeah, and the "new york post" and fox news have gone the way of making it up as they go along. cnn has fallen in this trap of so interested in beating everybody else by a couple of seconds that they will put something on the air that they haven't confirmed. and then they will say this may be speculation, but let me tell you. just report what you are seeing. especially like right now. you have reporters on the scene, who are 2 or 300 yards away. what are you hearing from them. >> stephanie: david we're going to let you go to you have can get it right at the top of the hour. >> all right. thank, stephanie. >> stephanie: all right. honey. >> we can confirm that the attack was caused by martians i'm sorry, i am told that is not tr
thoughts on that? >> i don't think that that's going to happen. the obama administration has been clear, they're distancing themselves from that concept. you've got an american citizen. we don't have dzhokhar going abroad in training. his brother apparently did. but dzhokhar didn't. and dzhokhar is going to be tried as an individual on his own right. so i think the chances of this ending up as an enemy combatant are very small. >> but you've heard that because of high security concerns they would like to question him for a period of time, albeit briefly, before mirandizing him and reading him his rights. how long can they do that? how far can they go with those questions? >> well, that's a very good question. because the longer we go, the less likely there is that there's a public security issue here. one thing that the defense will certainly raise is the remarks of the police chief of watertown in which he said these are the only two guys, we're done. now the argument from the government will be well, he wasn't informed. but, you know, that's going to be played out pretty significantly
as opposed to within the criminal justice system, which seems to be what the obama administration will do. after all, he is a u.s. citizen. he carried out the crime on u.s. soil. and there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of legal basis to try him as enemy combatant, which is not to say there aren't going to be more calls particularly from the right to do just that. >> when in theory you have so much evidence on american soil, why tarnish the prosecution by going enemy combatant. if you have no backlash from anybody who says you didn't do it the right way. >> he stole a suspect. but clearly -- you've got to walk through the process, right? >> i was thinking this weekend, again, and i'm speculating, you read the articles. we know now he ran after his own brother. you know what the defense is going to be. i was brainwashed by my brother. i ran over him to get away. >> the older brother, basically was even asked to leave his own mosque because his anti-american views were so strong that the islamic community in cambridge was outraged. >> if they saw this happen, raise this question and raise h
system of justice. >> i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to rule out enemy combatant status for this suspect. >> reporter: and the question of whether the fbi dropped the ball in 2011 when it looked at tamerlan tsarnaev's activity will be the subject of a closed-door briefing on capitol hill later today, when law enforcement officials brief lawmakers. john? >> all right, barbara starr, thanks so much. barbara starr in washington. i want to bring back fran townsend, cnn analyst, former homeland security adviser to president george w. bush. and fran, i want to get your take here. where do you think the investigation stands right now? we've had these initial criminal complaints given dzhokhar tsarnaev. we've seen sort of the case laid out just a little bit. but how about the investigation itself? what are the next steps? >> well, first of all, we know from investigators that they're cooperating with the russians. i talked to sources, federal sources, and the cooperation between russian authorities and the fbi is quite good. both want to understand what they mig
balance that? >> i think the obama administration has done a great job so far in this case in striking that balance. i think they were right to invoke the public safety exception to miranda, which says, hey, if you've got a guy who is a dangerous terrorist, where there may still be attacks that are imminent, where he may have co-conspirators, there may be another bomb out there, you don't have to immediately read the miranda warnings. you can do what any sensible person would do and any sensible police officer would do, first, talk to the guy and make sure there is no other imminent threat. and then i think after they did that initial questioning, they also did the right thing to move him to the civilian criminal justice system. you know, senator graham and others have suggested, oh, no, they should have held him as an enemy combatant, should have held him under the laws of war, i think the experience in the jose padilla case and other cases shows that trying one of these new categories leads to years of legal confusion. >> jenny, let me jump in. just to both of you and we'll wrap this
. >> and discipline therapy and truth, do you see any song the effect from this administration. secondly, president obama, the transition. president obama agrees with anything that is deceiving. and redistribution. >> and we all want the same thing. and there is deep disagreement at the moment, and there's so much disagreement right now. the discussion really ideological points. one the best ways. and whether it can be many paths. and what we mentioned. and businesses, if i have a good one. and to be tactical, the question right now is whether -- pecan ground. >> quick question with regards to education. the nyu school of business. i see from that for there are a lot of international students. from personal experience, obviously doing something right by attracting foreign students and go back and implement the things we talked about. are we doing the right thing? why are they coming and while we not going to north korea to study? >> that is the great question. one of the great things about the united states, higher education, and study. that is one of the reasons, if what we talk about facing the
korea, the obama administration has thus far pursued a policy that some has referred to strategic patience. will e that kim jong-un return to the negotiating table and return to denuclearization. we're in a situation where the current dictator has surpassed even his tyrant father and grandfather in unpredictability and recklessness. in a joint subcommittee hearing last week, i think most of our members agreed that the policy of strategic patience, if you want to call it that, has been a failure. i will get the questions out and then you can respond. the second is with reference to burma. certainly we've witnessed dramatic changes in that nation in the past two years, but i think we all agree there may well be some bumps in the road ahead. we applaud the reforms instituted thus far and certainly we're happy to see an emerging new political process last spring by elections, but we're also witnessing an escalation of ethnic violence. the military remains one of the most powerful actors in the country, and instead of working to curtail ethnic violence, it's thought by many to actually
not made in order. yesterday, the obama administration expressed ongoing concerns about this legislation, issuing a veto threat. i share the president's concern, despite positive changes that this bill falls short in several key ways. as written right now and hopefully there still may be some changes, cispa allows the military to directly collect personal information on american citizens, it fails to safeguard privacy of americans and grants sweeping immunity to companies for decisions made based on cyberinformation prohibiting consumers from holding companies accountable for reck less actions. i urge opposition. the chair: the gentlelady is recognized for 30 seconds. ms. schakowsky: i was going to conclude by saying i urge my colleagues to oppose this bill, we can and should do better and i'm hopeful that we still bill do -- will do better and i yield back the balance of my time. the chair: the gentlelady's time has expire. the gentleman from michigan is recognized. mr. ruppersberger: thank you, madam chair, i yield myself 30 seconds. i want to make very, very clear in the bill and i th
review board. clearly even john kerry is not confident in the obama administration's versions of the verns -- events. kerry promised the committee that he would clear the air, in his words, though he also repeatedly used the phrase that clears the air needs to be done so we can move on to far more important issues. and i am so grateful to secretary kerry for taking that position. we do need to get to the truth. dead d at benghazi, the americans cry out for truth. hose who were harmed and hurt, americans there deserve the truth. opefully we will get that. mr. speaker, with so much suffering and anguish right now in america, it is still the greatest nation in the history of the world. and may god guide the leadership in this country, that we don't drop the ball and fail on our watch. that we show ourselves to be worthy recipients of the gifts of liberty given to us by prior nerations, all coming as the founders noted as a gift from god. ith that i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. the chair will entertain a motion to adjourn

and squander the enormous sacrifice of american lives. in iraq, the obama administration's decision to withdraw u.s. troops in 2011 has resulted in the research of al qaeda, increasing the violence and growing caribbean influence. the picture of iraq looks increasingly violent. obamahanistan, president is making the same mistakes based on arbitrary time lines and without a finding the underlining the objectives strategy and mission. in my office last week, we discussed the need to have capability to support the afghan security forces and counter- terrorism efforts. when making decisions about our mission, the president should listen more to the professional military commanders on the front lines and less to the political advisers in the west wing. this committee was told he recommends possibly 20,000 troops remain in afghanistan after 2014. that would be about 13,600 u.s. troops, about half that many international forces. our commander tells us the mission should be to continue counter-terrorism efforts and train and it finds afghan security forces. for those missions across the whole afghanist

truman through ted kennedy right through the obama administration. it ensured if you had a pre-existing condition you could not be denied coverage. it ensured that every child in america had health coverage. it ensured if you became sick, that you could not become bankrupt. 2/3 of all bankruptcies in the united states were because of illness. so i was very proud of that vote. and i think that it is something modeled upon the massachusetts law, and i voted for obamacare. i believe that it's important. i believe it goes right to fundamental values in our state and in our contry. -- our country. i believe it is a right and not privilege to have access to health care. i voted yes on obamacare. steve voted no. >> mr. lynch, 90 seconds. >> sure. that's one. let me just address that, that's probably not our biggest difference. the biggest difference between ed and i are really if you look at our records, and i go back, ed is a policy guy, and i'm a people guy. that's why i was explaining before that on all these fights with the bank bailout, ed was with the banks and i was with the pe
reach. a third area of focuses is school safety. unfortunately, the obama administration in the past several years reduced funding for school safety by over $300 million. next to me are detailed the security our cools stkpwrapbts were cut $110 million in 2012. school safety initiative was cut $53 million in 2011. and the safe and drug-free schools grants were cut $184 million in 2010. this substitute restores funding for school safety. if the effort is to protect our kids -- and i know all 100 senators want to do everything we can to protect our kids. one of the most direct ways is to make sure there are resources on the ground protecting our kids. and so this bill would provide $3400 million in funding -- $300 million in funding, 30 million a year for ten years, to do exactly that, to provide funding for the secure our schools grants. a fourth area is improving the existing background checks as it concerns mental illness. if you look for a common theme among these mass murderers that we have seen recent years, one of the most disturbing things is we've seen person after person with
